Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Love Under the Mexican Moon

Lately, I've been having this thing for Johnette Napolitano. I just don't want to get too far away from the sound of her voice, whether it's her solo Sketchbooks or Scarred (which I posted here) or her work as vocalist & bassist with Concrete Blonde

Here's a compilation of previously unreleased tracks. A great place to start for newbie (all three of you) & ConBlonder alike. If you haven't listened to this band before (I'm talking to you three, pay attention), these are some alternate versions to some of their finest styles ("God is a Bullet" live [for the L.A.P.D.], "Bloodletting" extended version, &  "Tomorrow, Wendy" live are particularly terrific). Then you can pick your favorites & go find the releases where they were featured. If you're already a fan, then here're some variations to add to the gold.

Concrete Blonde – Still in Hollywood, I.R.S. Records, 1994.

Johnette has a 3-song solo EP entitled Naked that's a preview of her upcoming full-length solo album, tentatively set for release in September. Naked is, as the title suggests, a stripped down, acoustic set of Johnette's extraordinary voice & guitar.

Here's a taste, the third song entitled "Jazz on Vinyl". It’s a gritty ballad drenched in tequila & Johnette.

  2. nathan i downloaded myabe i will become number 4 we will see.
    don't know if this is cool or not. but naked sounded cool so here is a link.

    1. Thanks for the link. I'm sure you made a few folks that frequent this noman's land very happy. They asked me but I failed to oblige.

  3. i thought you would remove the link if it wasn't appropriate. the naked album is growing on me.
    the first song didn't do much, but later ones on the record began to reach inside. concrete blonde was a band i had just missed. so much life so little time. thank you as always.

  4. Used to listen to this at my brothers house. Am needing to hear the Cheap Trick tune, and, probably the rest as well.. Is the slink dead? or am I doing something wronG?

  5. Got it. worked on google chrome. THANK YOU!!
    won't work on safari.
